It’s Five O’ Clock Somewhere

Bottle of red? Bottle of white? It all depends on what kind of wine label design you are in the mood for tonight. We recently designed the logo and wine labels for Kleine Himmel, a vineyard in Hermann, MO. The gold foil and embossed lettering of the Traminette and Norton labels lets you know this is great wine without ever tasting the label. Cheers!

Fashion Footwear Association New York 2014

The FFANY show is in full swing, and Dynasty Footwear’s showrooms are cooler than ever!* We recently teamed up with Dynasty to help with brand development (logo, shoe boxes, display crates, signage, etc.) for the new winter-inspired shoes and boots called Calistoga.
*The weather outside is cool, but feet stay warm and cozy in Calistoga shoes and boots. Just follow the brr…bear.

Refreshed Brand in the Fresh Air

This week is the FFaNY footwear show in NYC, so Anda stopped by to visit our clients in their Dynasty Footwear showrooms on Monday. It’s a great opportunity to see the brands that we collaborated on in full action. Pacifica™ and Pex™ are two brands that are being presented this week. The projects included logo design, packaging, signage and brand books (we’ll post these on our website portfolio soon). Meanwhile, one of the new Pex boxes decided to step outside to enjoy some fresh air before being bombarded by paparazzi.

GD USA American Package Design

We are pleased to announce that a recent project we designed for Dynasty Footwear received a 2014 American Package Design Award from Graphic Design USA (GD USA). Despite the urge, please refrain from asking for our autographs at this time. We simply can’t grip a Sharpie marker while holding all of our awards.
 
This project was promoted during last week’s shoe expo in NYC, so we wish the new product great success. The current edition Makalu brand shoes are sold at Shoe Carnival stores everywhere. 
 
Award: 2014 American Package Design

Anda Visits Dynasty’s Footwear Show: NYC

We were happy to stop by and visit our friends of Dynasty Footwear at their cool showroom in Midtown Manhattan yesterday. This week is the Fashion Footwear Association of New York (FFaNY) show and our client is promoting several new brands and styles of shoes, including two brands we recently collaborated on together: London Underground and Makalu Gift Edition (recently awarded a GD USA Best Packaging Award 2014 – more information coming soon!). It was snowing yesterday, so a pair of Makalu boots would have come in very handy…or very footy.

Just in time for Pantone Black C Friday…Makalu Now at Shoe Carnival

We first wrote about this project last December after attending the 2011 FFaNY Shoe Expo in NYC . It’s been a year in the making, but Dynasty Footwear’s Makalu California™ shoe line is now available in Shoe Carnival stores everywhere. We teamed up with our friends at Dynasty to develop the branding for the new shoe line. This included logos, packaging, brand books and fixtures for displaying the shoes in their showrooms and now in the stores. It’s great to finally see the project come full circle!

London Underground Rebranding Project

Anda Creative recently finished working on a rebranding project with Dynasty Footwear. The existing brand needed a facelift (or in this case, a footlift), including a logo redesign, new displays and packaging. The project debuted at last week’s Spring Fashion Footwear Association show in NYC.  We’d like to give a special thanks to Matt Summers-Sparks, editor of The London Report, for providing some of the London photographs used in this project.London_Underground

2011 FFANY New York Shoe Expo: Dynasty Footwear Showrooms

Anda just returned from a great trip to NYC. Dynasty Footwear was showing during the FFANY Shoe Show last week (Nov. 29 – Dec. 1), so we jumped at the opportunity to visit with our cool and creative friends at Dynasty and to see the results of our latest collaboration: Makalu™ California.

We were tasked with creating a Southern California-influenced branding design for the Women’s, Girl’s and Men’s Makalu California shoe lines. This included logos, packaging and brand books. In addition, we designed fixtures for displaying the shoes in their showrooms.

The Dynasty Footwear showrooms looked fantastic! We were happy to see the project’s final pieces come to fruition, and to see exactly how well our graphic designs worked with Dynasty’s innovative and stylish shoe designs. Now that we have seen the actual space for this event, watch out for next year! Well, unless they change venues without telling us.

Thanks again, Dynasty!
